Just returned from an awesome EF Tours trip to Australia and New Zealand and it was topped off with a great full day tour with Southern Cross Tours. One group was lead by the veteran Royd, and we had the comedic stylings and environmental insights of Chris! His knowledge of the history, flora and fauna, as well as the hiding spots of trap door and funnel web spiders that kept us entertained, informed and interested the entire day. Whip cracking, boomerang throwing, Aussie BBQ and some of the most splendid photo ops (stay on the paths please, it's a National Park!).

Well done mates!

The tour guides were a good laugh and very easy to talk and interact with and morning tea and lunch were so good. Overall choosing between the theme parks, helicopter ride and jet boating. Southern cross 4WD was my favourite experience from my holiday.

If you are travelling to the Gold Coast then undertaking the all inclusive Rainforest and Wildlife Tour – Window To The Wilderness is a must.

I undertook the tour on 29th July 2014 and had such a great time. My guide Trent was a fountain of knowledge and I felt the tour was reasonably paced and there is plenty to do for all ages.

My favourite part of the day would definitely be the wild bird feeding in the Lamington National Park and the delicious lunch at Spring Gully Stays.

For those with a sweet tooth I would recommend visiting the 2 fudge shops on the Gallery Walk on Mount Tamborine.

My partner and I went on the day long Scenic tour hosted by the extremely well informed Royd! Royd not only could speak to us about general Gold Coast developments, but walked us through the rain forest, enthusiastically pointing out all the fauna and flora in detail. If you are tourist for a day or a local looking for a day out with family, this is great way to see and learn about the Gold Coast away from the glitz and glam of Surfers Paradise.

Excellent booking experience so well managed and friendly. Our guide Mick was so warm and friendly and very informative and answered all our questions. He has the perfect personality for this type of tour involves everyone and makes you all feel so welcome. The food and service was top notch and the activities along the way kept everyone involved and interested. Would definitely recommend to both local and overseas visitors. Keep up the great work.
